I don’t mean that the yarn has special powers…I mean that I had yarn given to me 🙂 The only problem is…
…some of it came in the form of Yarn barf…ugg! Oh well, free yarn is free yarn! The colors are fantastic and bright and I already have a pattern for them in mind…
The six colors are Bright Purple, Bright Orange, Bright Teal, Bright Pink, Red & Black. I can’t wait to put them all together.
Now, I have mentioned this before…I have a small problem when it comes to projects. I will get inspired and start a new one before finishing an old one. But not this time! I took the mess of yarn and rolled them into balls (easy for working with later) and then I did a test section of the pattern to see if I could do it and what it will look like. I then put all 6 balls, the test piece and hook in a bag, tied it up and put it away until I have finished my brother’s Mario blanket. I am just as surprised as you are! But I did it 🙂
Speaking of Mario…
The section you see here is about 35 rows away from starting the chart for the last page…
That means that I only have about a million rows away from being done! Actually I think it’s about 120 rows…still, it’s a lot to get done in the next week and a bit…I can do it!
Once this is done I do have a couple other little projects to finish before working with that lovely bright stuff. More on those later when I can get them out and take pictures of them 🙂
I decided to figure out how much time I have spent working in this bad boy. Not sure how to do that, I remembered that I was usually working on it while watching movies or tv series’. That makes it a little easier…wanna know??
All 8 Harry Potter movies (1178 min)
Two Lord of the Rings Movies (extended versions) (463 Min)
3 seasons of Vampire Diaries (2970 min)
7 seasons of Mad About You-164 episodes (3608 min)
Twilight (3 times) (366 min)
New Moon (3 times) (390 Min)
Eclipse (once, soon to be twice) (124*2= 248)
Breaking Dawn pt. 1 & pt. 2 (once, soon to be twice) (115+117=232 min)
3 seasons of NCIS (48 minutes each, 22 episodes (approx…it’s been a while) = 3168 min)
6 episodes of Doc Martin (43 minutes each= 258 min.)
14 episodes of Heros (43 minutes each = 602 minutes)
For a total estimated time of : 13483 min or 224.72 hours! YIKES! That’s a long time. But it has taken me over a year because I haven’t worked on it daily…there was a 4 month section where I didn’t touch it at all.
I think it’s time to brew some coffee and get busy…I only have a week and a half to finish…what shall I watch tonight I wonder….
